The Leibniz Institute for Jewish History and Culture – Simon Dubnow (DI) is dedicated to interdisciplinary research across multiple eras of Jewish life worlds in Central and Eastern Europe, from the Middle Ages through to the present. This research adopts a pan-European perspective and includes areas of Jewish emigration, especially Israel as well as North and Latin America.
Through events, university courses, and a broad range of publications, the research findings are presented both to a specialist audience and the interested public. This includes the internationally renowned bilingual »Jahrbuch des Dubnow-Instituts/Dubnow Institute Yearbook«; the essay series »toldot« and »hefez«, and the magazine »Jewish History & Culture«. On the blog »Mimeo,« scholars offer an overview of their current research projects. The special collection of the institute library is also open to students and guests.
This international conference of the Dubnow Institute, organized in cooperation with leading Polish and Israeli institutions and funded by the Alfred Landecker Foundation, will be dedicated to the eightieth anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
The Leibniz Institute for Jewish History and Culture – Simon Dubnow (DI) offers up to five fello-wships to external researchers for a visit in Leipzig during the academic year 2023/24. The fellow-ship’s duration is one to three months.
The webpage »Jewish Scholars at the Leipzig University. Participation, Disadvantage and Exclusion« of the Dubnow Institute and the Leipzig University Archive provides information on the life and work of Jewish academics at the Leipzig University.
